Quite close to Stamford in Lincolnshire and the A1 road, is this delightful and important wildlife reserve. Several species of orchids and scarce butterflies, etc. The Marbled White was in abundance Saturday 8th July 2017, together with some orchids including the Pyramidal orchid. Here’s a selection:

Two courting critters!

Likely to be Small Skipper Butterfly at Barnack Hills and Holes

Cons: Not suitable for disabled as path is steep and bumpy. No facilities. Dofg walkers abound.
